Tartan date: Not Specified
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.

Registration notes: Concept from Alastair Gillespie and design by Marjan Stoop of AaBe Textiles of Tilburg. ( Tilburg was liberated during World War II by the 15th Scottish Division on 24th October 1944 and Alastair Gillespie and his organisation Scotfest ( suggested to the Tilburg Mayor that the two tartans would cement the bonds between Tilburg and Scotland. Tilburg uses blue and yellow as their city colours and the tartans will be used for kilts and to decorate one or more meeting places in the town. Tilburg was traditionally known as the wool capital of the Netherlands and in the 17th century there were more than 300 looms in the city and by 1881 there were around 145 woollen mills. The industry collapsed in the 1960s and now there is but one mill remaining - AaBe. Tilburg is between Rotterdam and Eindhoven just north of the Belgian border.

Where tartans were recorded before the establishment of the Scottish Register of Tartans (SRT) on 5 February 2009, the original Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) and the Scottish Tartans World Register (STWR) reference numbers have been retained. The new SRT reference number can be found in the address box on your browser (url).

The registration criteria now applied by the Register conforms to the Scottish Register of Tartans Act 2008. These criteria are different to those previously applied by either the STA or the STWR.
